  • In Nuna Engineering, we build technology to enable users (from data scientists to analysts to policy-makers) to understand healthcare data while ensuring its integrity, security and privacy. Our work runs the gamut from joining streams of messy real-world data to building queryable data warehouses to constructing visualizations and dashboards that provide actionable insight. We build systems that are auditable, as automated as possible, an accurate representation of the underlying data, and, most importantly, responsive to our end users' needs. We strive for a creative, collaborative engineering environment that implements best practices of peer review, readability, maintainability, and security of the code base and infrastructure
  • The Nuna Backend Engineering team is responsible for building the APIs, database schemas and business logic to power our apps.

Our APIs are bringing new capabilities to healthcare - like understanding the impact of quality improvement in real time on large amounts of data
  • We are building for the long term with a focus on increasing engineer velocity across Nuna by maintaining standardized development and deployment infrastructure tooling for all of Nuna's application development.

  • You'll mentor more junior engineers and, in turn, learn from more senior engineers, because we are learners, not knowers, and growing Nuna's people is the most reliable way to scale our impact
  • You'll work as part of a team, not in a silo. At Nuna we rise by lifting others!
